c700x420Most volunteers interested in direct service advocacy start out by answering our crisis line. All volunteer advocates must complete Call to Safety’s Basic Advocacy Training. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not currently accepting any new volunteers or conducting our regular in-person volunteer trainings. If you would like to be put on a contact list to be notified when we resume our volunteer program, please email

Our Development Volunteers support the financial well being of the organization by providing help with fundraising efforts. Thanks to the hard work of the Development Committee, Call to Safety is able to continue providing life-saving services to the community.

Here are some of the ways Development Volunteers help out at Call to Safety:

  • Help with the planning of our annual fundraising event, Visionary Awards Reception
  • Assist in the planning of other fundraising events including house party fundraisers, benefit events, dance parties, trivia nights, and community education events.
  • Help to procure in-kind donations for auctions, raffles, and events.
  • Serve as a Call to Safety volunteer representative at community fundraising events.
  • Assist in Call to Safety marketing efforts including social media, postering around town, and spreading the word to your community.

As stated above, our volunteer program is still inactive due to COVID-19. Because our advocates are still working remotely, we don’t have the capacity to train and on-board new volunteers. Despite the end of the mask mandate in Oregon and increased vaccine numbers, we are still monitoring news regarding new COVID variants and doing our best to protect our community. We do not know when our program will open back up again. If you are interested in being notified when we do start accepting volunteer applications, please email to be added to the list. Please know you likely will not receive a response, but we will add you to the volunteer mailing list for the future.

“Volunteering with Call to Safety provided tangibility to my feminist values. It allowed me to feel like I was actively doing something to work towards creating the kind of community and world I want to see.”
